After uploading our last little film to YouTube, I have noticed there are loads of films of the inland waterways but most have only had hits into the 100's - not the thousands or tens of thousands. Also many are a bit shaky and grainy.

Aren't there any budding amateur cameramen out there to show eveyone how great our waterways can be?

Do we not use YouTube to show what our holidays and lives are like? or what's going on in the waterway world?

We love YouTube - it's a great place to share information and have some fun!

My favourite clip I've found so far is "The Great Narrowboat Race" - (2143 views)

The Lancaster Canal Trip is good - (Only 95 views!!!)

Winter photo's - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FD833tWLeTs (again - only 147 views!!!)

or if you want something that reminds you of sunny days on the River Soar then ours is somewhere on there too... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vUMk6wHMZ4A

There are some great little films on youtube featuring the waterways...what's your favourite???

Since July our one on the Wyrley has had over 3400 hits and is embedded on many sites of marine interest around the world:

Our one which is a tribute to John Jinks has had 2200 hits since 23rd August:

The Gardner powered tug has 1000 + :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yNxylzZHKkg

The "Panzercat" YouTube channel shows stuff that doesnt go out on sold dvd's.

You can see the boat we've just built being launched, just search Sleepy Hollow launch. I'm no good at adding links.. Also mine and my brother's engines are on there being started in the garage.
